Marouane Fellaini's time at Manchester United could be coming to a close.
Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is believed to be edging closer to a move to the Chinese Super League, with Shandong Luneng reportedly holding talks with the Red Devils over a potential deal.
The 31-year-old Belgian has always played a bit-part role at Old Trafford since joining from Everton back in 2013, but his involvement has been particularly limited under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær, and he has played just 31 minutes of football since he took over from José Mourinho in December.
According to the Daily Mail, the powerful midfielder was set to have showdown talks with United on Tuesday to determine his future, with a delegation from a Chinese Super League side preparing to hammer out a deal with executive vice chairman Ed Woodward. The Chinese transfer window doesn't close until February 28, so there is no urgency to get the move done immediately.
Certainly, Fellaini has shown little desire to play week-in, week-out football since moving to the Red Devils, and a lucrative, money-oriented move abroad would not be out of the question. The player signed a contract extension with United back in June, extending his stay until 2020, but he is still likely to be available for a relatively low fee.
